    Audacity +lame.dll

    I have a problem in that when I re-image computers using RIS\WDS the lame.dll (mp3) file association is lost meaning that I have to do it manually on each machine. Is there a reg hack or other trick I can use to do this for me?

    Re: Audacity +lame.dll

    being a bit daft here but do you mean as in registering the dll as in regsvr32 or you mean the actual file association ?

    If the file assocation then what are you associating the dll with ?

    DOH ! Guess it helps if you read the title / subject of the thread instead of skim reading.

    We had to create a custom reg frag for the users to solve this. I'll see if I can dig it up.

    Indeed. When you first try to expoet or save a file as an MP3 it asks for the location of the lame.dll file which lives in the plugins folder. Once you point it there it is registered with Audacity. When you image\sysprep the machine it loses this.

    Ok:

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Audacity\Audacity\MP3]
    Value Name:MP3LibPath
    Value: String:C:\\Program Files\\Audacity\\Lame\\lame_enc.dll

    If you're using the beta version > 1.3.3, Audacity will automatically look in the windows/system folders for the DLL.
